Incipit of the Gregorian chant introit for the fourth Sunday after Easter, from which it gets the name Cantate Sunday.[1]

Cantate Sunday is the fourth Sunday after Easter in the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar[2] and the Lutheran liturgical calendar.

It is known by the Eastern Orthodox as the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman.[3]

Because it's often used for an annual sermon about hymns and liturgical music, it's sometimes nicknamed "Sing-song Sunday."
